Learning to Cook from YouTube

I'm not the best of cooks. I try. My husband has patients with me. We were both raised in homes with delicious food. Both of our moms are amazing. Me? Not so much. But lately, I've been inspired by YouTube videos. Due to embedding things, I can't post the videos. But this one, looks good. 2 super, duper easy recipes. :)

This Santa Fe chicken one, also looks yummy. And being from the southwest, I know that's not how you make Santa Fe chicken. But it's quick, and so easy! Delicious too. So there you go, I'm becoming a bit more of a cook. Not just a warm up the food, let's go out to eat, or what kind of sandwich would you like kind of wife.

I do believe Jose is enjoying that. He has picked up a few pounds since being home. I'm thinking that he's just really enjoying being out of the military. And my cooking really is improving. I guess, I should watch more YouTube videos. Somehow, I missed all the family cooking lessons growing up.

And yes. I know these are all chicken recipes. But we've been trying to eat a little healthier around here. I know what you're thinking. Healthy? But this is definitely better than tacos al pastor, or gorditas every night. :)

Jelly Bean Day!

Happy Jelly Bean Day from our family to yours! What a great day! We're celebrating with some Jelly Bellies. My favorite! And you know, we may have to make a big deal about today. Being that we're the "Crazy Jelly Bean" family. Maybe a fun dinner out and jelly beans! :)

Can You Say Fun??

I just came across this chair!! Can you say fun?? I told Jose, I think it would be perfect in our home office. I'm not sure, that he feels the same way. But it is so fun. I adore the style of this chair. The colors just add to the fun. To be honest, I'd love to find a chair, in this same shape. Even if it's just plain and simple. You know, wood and worn out fabric. :)

Happy Easter

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter! We have a busy day planned. And we're so super excited about spending the day with our families. Yes, Jose has the day off. But the group is still playing for the mass today. It's going to be a fun day. I just can't wait! I feel like I'm a little kid again. I wonder if we're going to get Easter baskets too... :)
